Sunday's Weekly Book Recap #48

Happy New Year!  The holidays were a whirlwind of fun activities, followed by a snowstorm earlier this week that left 8 inches of snow on the ground and plunged New York City into a deep freeze.  It's the perfect weather for staying indoors and curling up with a good book.

My first post of 2014 is a recap of books that I'm reading or have acquired during the holidays and this month so far, which I am sharing on the following blogs:
